IMPORTANT SAFETY INFORMATION  
WARNING:  
!
• DO NOT USE WITH COMMERCIAL EQUIPMENT.  
• Always turn off power at the main power source by unscrewing fuse or switching circuit  
breaker to the off position before installing, removing, or cleaning this thermostat.  
• Read all of the information in this manual before programming this thermostat.  
• This is a 24V AC low-voltage thermostat. Do not install on voltages higher than 30V AC.  
• All wiring must conform to local and national building and electrical codes and ordinances.  
• Do not short (jumper) across terminals on the gas valve or at the system control to test  
installation.This will damage the thermostat and void the warranty.  
• Do not connect ground to any terminal in this unit.  
• This thermostat is equipped with automatic compressor protection to prevent potential  
damage due to short cycling or extended power outages.The short cycle protection provides a  
5-minute delay between heating or cooling cycles to prevent the compressor from being dam-  
aged.  
• Do not switch system to cool if the temperature is below 45°F (7°C).This can damage the cool-  
ing system and may cause personal injury.  
• Use this thermostat only as described in this manual.

What is an event?  
An event is a programming period. This could be the period in the morning when you are preparing for work or school. It could be the  
period when no one is at home. It could be the period when the household is asleep at night.  
The time for an event is selected based on when you want the event to occur. For example, if you wake up at 6:30 AM, set the first  
event for 6:30 AM. The thermostat will automatically make sure that your home is at the desired temperature selected for that event  
by the time you wake.  
This thermostat can be set for 2 or 4 events.  
Two events should be selected if someone is home all day thereby requiring a constant temperature during the day and a different  
temperature at night.  
Four events are the most common for working households. Event 1 (WAKE) is the morning period. Event 2 (DAY) is when everybody  
has left for school or work. Event 3 (EVE) is the return period, coming home from school or work. Event 4 (NIGHT) is the night period  
when everybody is asleep.  
How do I know what program is right for me?  
®
The thermostat is factory set with the US EPA ENERGYSTAR recommended times and temperatures for optimal energy savings. You  
can change these to suit your lifestyle.  
The best rule is to examine your schedule and set the times and temperatures that best fit. This thermostat is so versatile, you can  
easily change temperatures or programs at a whim.

What is the difference between Basic and Basic/DP

The DP stands for Dew Point. If the remote outdoor sensor (Part #46M98) is connected and Basic/DP or  
Precision/DP is selected, the thermostat will automatically optimize the indoor humidity level based on the  
desired indoor temperature and outdoor temperature. In Dew Point mode,the humidify control level

DIFFERENTIAL SETTING  
DIFFERENTIAL SETTINGS  
The temperature differential is your comfort level. The differential is the difference from setpoint  
before your heating or cooling system will turn on. The 81M27 and 81M28 models also have 2nd  
stage differential. In the Heat mode, if the temperature falls below (or above for cooling) the set-  
point by the 1st stage differential plus the 2nd stage differential, the second stage of heating (or  
cooling) will turn on.

When would I need to change the INSTALLER settings?

There is a security lock on this feature to prevent tampering. USE IT!

How does Energy Efficient Recovery™ (EER™) work?  
Energy Efficient Recovery™ is an energy saving feature. During a set back period (or set up in cooling), it allows the thermostat to  
look up to two hours ahead to determine when to turn on the heating (cooling) system. During this time period, the second stage is  
locked out until 20 minutes before the next programmed event to allow the first (and most efficient stage) to bring your home to the  
desired temperature.  
How does my remote outdoor sensor work?  
The remote outdoor sensor (Part #46M98) can be used to aid in the comfort of your home or simply as a sensing device to inquire  
about outdoor conditions. In most applications, the thermostat will have a display of the temperature sensed by the remote outdoor  
sensor. With your heat pump system, the remote outdoor sensor can help determine when to turn on the second stage of heating for  
optimal comfort.  
Where should I install a remote outdoor sensor?  
The remote outdoor sensor should be installed on the northern wall of your home, away from direct sunlight or other heat sources that  
may affect its sensitivity.  
NOTE: Use twisted pair wire (84X49) for the installation of the outdoor sensor.  
What do the lights below the display mean?  
The lights indicate different operations of the HVAC equipment.  
With a call for heating or cooling, the HEAT or COOL light will be illuminated on the 81M26 and 81M27.  
The AUX light indicates the second (backup) stage of heating. This is used only on the 81M28 model.  
The CHECK light is used on all models. It indicates the equipment should be serviced by a qualified technician.  
The EMER light indicates that the emergency heat is enabled in the HEAT/COOL menu (regardless of heat demand). This light is used  
only on the 81M28 model.

What should I do if my power goes out?  
Make sure your family is safe and don’t worry about the thermostat. Your thermostat automatically retains the time of day for approxi-  
mately two hours in the event of a power outage. All other programmed parameters are stored permanently in memory. So, if your  
power is out for more than two hours, simply reset the clock. See page 4.  
How do I reset the thermostat program to factory conditions?  
To reset the thermostat to factory conditions, press the UP button and the LEFT button at the same time. Hold for 8 seconds. The time  
of day will display 12:00 indicating a reset has occurred.  
NOTE: This will erase all programming and return the thermostat to the factory conditions (including the installer settings) along  
with erasing current security codes. Use this only as a last resort.  
How do I know if the heating or cooling is on?  
The display of the thermostat will indicate the operating mode, HEAT or COOL. When the temperature in your home decreases or  
increases, the heating or cooling cycle will come on based on the displayed mode. Also, lights along the bottom crease of the thermo-  
stat will indicate various equipment operations.  
Who do I contact for more information?  
href="
110-1052F 5/12/05 11:59 AM Page 27  
My energy bills are too high. Is there anything I can do?  
While we can’t do anything about the high cost of energy, we can try to use less energy and thereby lower our heating and  
cooling costs.  
®
Generally, the best way to do this is to use the EPA ENERGYSTAR recommended setpoints for heating and cooling.  
®
ENERGYSTAR Setpoints  
Winter  
(Heating)  
Summer  
(Cooling)  
Morning 70°F (21°C) 78°F (25°C)  
Day 62°F (17°C) 85°F (29°C)  
Evening 70°F (21°C) 78°F (25°C)  
Night 62°F (17°C) 82°F (28°C)  
Another way to contain costs is to cycle the heat pump or air conditioner with moderation. The thermostat controls the cycle rate  
based on temperature differentials. By maintaining a reasonable differential setting, 1°F for 1st stage and 2°F for 2nd stage,  
your furnace will cycle with moderation.  
Finally, using the remote outdoor sensor coupled with the balance point feature (see INSTALLER SETTINGS, page 22) will  
allow your furnace to cycle to the most efficient stage for your heating or cooling needs.
